It’s been slightly over two years since the COVID-19 pandemic started and almost two since the first lockdowns in Europe. The governments around the world are finally loosening up restrictions (Switzerland did it two weeks ago), many people are vaccinated, and life seems like it’s going to continue in a way that it’s closer to pre-pandemic times.
The bliss lasted for a week. Then Putin invaded Ukraine, started committing war crimes, and threatened to use nuclear weapons. And the world changed again, and nobody knows where we’re heading. The only thing that’s clear for sure is that the next several years will be hard. Aside from completely unecessary human suffering, this war will have political, social, and economic consequences worldwide for years to come.
I was looking to boring times ahead, not more historic events.
